Registration for the 32nd annual NASIG Conference is open

Registration for the 32nd annual NASIG Conference is open. In order to get the member rate, you must login on the NASIG website prior to registering for the conference.
In order to avoid selling out our block of conference rate hotel rooms, the link to reserve a hotel room at the Westin is tied to registration for the first three weeks. After you register for the conference, you will receive a link to the conference rate at the Westin in your confirmation email. This is the first time we’ve implemented this policy, and we know that some of you may have concerns and questions. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for clarification. We can’t promise an immediate reply, but we will answer your questions as soon as we can.
There are some extra event options for attendees that can be included in your registration or paid separately through a second “registration” if your institution requires that. These need to be purchased in advance of the conference, and will not be available on-site:

  • Indianapolis Indians game – reserved block of seats for $14 ea.
  • Dallara IndyCar Factory opening reception – framed photo with a show car with the NASIG logo for $10 ea.
  • Dallara IndyCar Factory opening reception – street legal race car ride for $20 ea. (limited availability)
We are excited to welcome you to the NASIG 2017 conference, featuring speakers Dr. Michel Dumontier, April Hathcock, and Carol Tilley, as well as a wide range of discussions on topics about the information resources lifecycle! NASIG has been and continues to be a top-notch opportunity for networking and continuing education for professionals across all aspects of scholarly communications, electronic resources, and serials.
There is a special student rate - see the following link for details on the rates:
